Layouts to share...

I have put the finishing touches on the layouts from the Making Memories trade class in Brisbane. I didn't think I'd be able to find the right photos for these layouts which were done before the photos were added, but I did find some and I'm happy with the results. As I mentioned before I'm not blown away by these layouts but I did learn more about some of the Making Memories tools. I used a ribbon curler for the first time and won one in a spot prize and I used one of the paper ranges called 'Fifth Avenue' - the red/black and pink one.

The first layout is the Easter egg hunt with the 'Garden Party' range of papers...

This layout is also using the Garden Party range. Phoebe had this kitten called Spotty who she almost killed with love and fortunately the kitten rolled with the punches and did as she was told.

The last layout is the Fifth Avenue one. The photo is of my Mum and Dad with their Mothers on their wedding day. The papers (surprisingly) went really well.
I have more to show in the next few days. I have a very busy week ahead. I have Tuesday scrappers coming tomorrow (which I'm excited about) and then classes in Ravensthorpe on Saturday, followed by 2 days in Jerramungup at my friend Sally's house, who is launching her Monday Madness scrapbookers group, home Tuesday for the locals then off to Newdegate on Wednesday. Phew! I'd better get creative and get planning!
On a personal note, we celebrated Asher's birthday (our nephew) on Saturday morning with a huge 'Thomas the Tank Engine' party followed by one in the afternoon for Jett (our baby) who turned 2. Jett absolutely loved the party, although I'm not convinced he knew it was for him, and he especially loved the 'Thomas' cake that my Mum made for him and all the 'boy toys' he received. I cant wait to scrap the photos.
Also, Dean is still struggling to get well but we are all behind him all the way and are thankful for all the support we have and are receiving. Thanks again for your kind comments.
